. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so he has lost the one advantage that he once had. secondly, there were a lot of independent, undecided voters in 1980 who had lost faith in carter and were just waiting to see if they could feel confidence in his challenger. there are so few independent voters. this is an election that's about mobilizing the bases. so going after the independent voter is not a big surprise. having said all that in the memo put out by david axelrod -- >> who is who? >> he's the campaign guru on the obama side. >> right. >> he points out tha
a couple days obsessing over a 1980s or 1990s redistribution quote from obama right? that was the news of the day for the romney campaign at that time. we gave more attention to that than we did to the revifgs the gdp numbers or growth numbers that happened yesterday down from 1.7 to 1.3% growth. you would think in an ideal world for romney that would be a bigger story. the economy grew much slower in the second quarter than we thought. >> right. >> they put a lot more emphasis and push behind the redistribution quote which was old, sort of meaningless, didn't say much about obama. >> 1998. you're looking at the fact that over the last three months, kelly, you have jobs coming in at hundred dollar a hundred thousand per month. and they're chasing the headline of the day or they pull out a 1998 video. people don't care about that any more than they care about when mitt romney stopped being ceo of bain capital. what they want to know is how the hell are you going to get me back to work? >> when you watch a romney event from beginning to end day after day as we do as students of this you
for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy questio
track/wrong track is going up at just the right time for president obama. >> right. in places like ohio, the economy's been better than it has been, at least across the country, on average. rich lawry has a smart column, a conservative columnist, piece in "politico" this morning where he talks about the effect that bill clinton's speech seems to have had on this race. that basically he did a better job than anyone else at saying any of the problems that are still out there, you can't dump them all on president obama. and lawry argues that that was an effective argument. it seems like since then the numbers have changed appreciably. and i think they're more linked to the convention than they are to the data ratner's talking about. there's no doubt everything he's pointed to is real, but i think politics and perception is often shaped by these big events and sort of how you feel emotionally, and that's what's getting picked up. >> all right. jim vandehei, packer fan, you can't get that win back, but we got the refs back. >> i'm still hoping we get that win back. >>> coming up next, a litt
all of their guy's flaws. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so he has lost the one advantage that he once had. secondly, there were a lot of independent, undecided voters in 1980 who had lost faith in carter and were just waiting to see if they could feel confidence in his challenger. there are so few independent voters. this is an election that's about mobilizing the bases. so going after the independent voter is not a big surprise. having said all that in the memo put out by david axelrod -- >> who is who? >> he's the campaign guru on the ob
't yet know because right now it looks like obama is doing really, really well in pennsylvania. and the surrounding states, new jersey, new york, or maryland for that matter. i think romney does have a shot obviously in some of the other states like ohio, not that far away, but pennsylvania looks like a long shot. he was doing some fund-raising there earlier today, had a rally in pennsylvania, but we'll see if this is serious, this notion that he potentially has a shot in pennsylvania. if he does, it would be a dramatic shift. >> wow, we heard, wolf, a lot of analysts say the real turning point could come in the debates which begin wednesday in denver. now we also have received this memo from a romney senior adviser that makes it sound as though romney is the underdog. let me read a portion of it now. saying president obama is a uniquely gifted speaker and is widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. this will be the eighth one on one presidential debate of his political career. for mitt romney, it will be his first. so what is at th

. arthel: i'm with you on that. thank you, david asman. jon: right now president obama and governor romney's paths set to cross again on the campaign trail today, this time in the critical battle ground state of ohio. both men are trying to win toss-up states like ohio and a key voting bloc as well; white males. as politico reports today, quote: after decades of taking a backseat to the growing voting demographics of women, latinos, middle class, white men are finding themselves front and center once again. let's get a fair and balanced debate underway. we're joined by simon rosenberg, president and founder of ndn and a former clinton campaign adviser, mary katherine hamm is editor at large of hot air.com and a fox news contributor. mary katherine, according to a gallup poll last month, mitt romney enjoyed a 24-point advantage among white males nationally. last week reuters/ip sos put it at 20%. is he in danger of losing, perhaps, more of this group? >> yeah. i mean, this is part of a larger gender gap problem, the gender gap you don't hear about which is traditionally democrats have had p

, those are issues he was ahead of obama until recently, and was ahead of obama with female voters until recently. the reason you're seeing that ad right now, the biggest and most troubling change in the polling in the last two weeks has been the shift in the right track/wrong track numbers and concurrently the shift of obama being given the edge over romney on those issues where the only place romney had a lead. they are, you know -- obviously don't want to talk about the issues that are toxic with female voters but must win back some of the suburban female votes on economics, deficit, stuff like that. they see that as an imperative and that's why that ad is out there. >> i don't think you say to your baby to, welcome to america. the first of the ad is so bizarre. hi, honey, welcome to our family. >> welcome to a baby -- welcome to america, baby, you're teething and have $50,000 in debt. after the break while the white house tweaks its analysis of the u.s. consulate in libya the romney ticket plans a pivot to hammer on foreign policy, something paul ryan is already focusing on. >> we're
